The stated fact is correct. The MM  pumps do not support the "feature" of
specifying temp basal as a percentage. However the reason is not because the
0.1 unit increment creates a limitation. That would cause no problem if they
wanted to support this feature. The pump would just adjust the time between
0.1u increments as needed.
